Fisher, 71, for many years a resident of Ban- croft, and a prominent woman o: southeastern Idaho, died Sunday in Lava Hot Springs of pneumon- ia, after ap illness of less than 48 hours, which .seemingly started as a mild form of influenza. Mrs. Fisher was the wife o f George H. Fisher, of Bancroft, who was appointed last July to be Superintendent 'of the Lava Hot Springs Foundation; and who has beAn prominent in church, civic and political activities for vears. Both Mrs. Fisher Civic Clubs Plan For State Publicity Representatives of the Associat- ed Civic Clubs of Southeastern :daho, and of the Eastern Idaho Chamber of Commerce met in Po- cateilo, Monday afternoon and evening- to discuss problems rela- tive to Idaho's part in the war and the planning for post war conditions.. The first meeting, held at nocn n the Whitman Hotel was devot- ed to a discussion of publicising Idaho and its resources to draw the attention of business tourists, and homeseekers, and to promote the sale of Idaho products. It was pointed out that Idah-o leads the states in the number of army enlistments in proportion to pop- ulation, but that it has been one cf the most neglected of all the states in the location of defense projects by the national govern- ment. Methods were discussed of how i best to reach the ears of the pow-' ers that be in Washington, and how to get some effective action or the allocation of some of the defense industries in this state. The perennial discussion of de- velopment of Idaho's phosphate resources and of the construction of the Palisade dam in Swan Val- ley occupied much of the time of the second meetkig, held at 4 P.M. at the Hotel Bannock. A committee was appointed to wcrk out definite plans for these developments to be presented to the authorities in the nations capital; and plans were also dis- cussed for "raising a fund to t.h.. efforts to get for Men 20 To 45 Must Register Februai Every male resident in Idaho. between the military ages of 20 and 45 years will be affected by tne complete registration of Am- erica's potential military power on February 16, Brig.

McCor.- nel explained, is that all male perscsis not previously registered, who attained their twentieth birhday on or before December 31, 1941, and who have rot attained their forty-fifth birthday on or before February 16, 1942, must register as of their home address between 7 A. M. and 9 P. M. o n Feb. 16. While anyone who is unavoid- ably away from his home on' Feb- ruary 16 may register at the regis- tration place most convenient o n that day, Gen. McConnel said reg- istrants should make every effort to register with own local boards to avoid possible confusion. Any person who must 'register while away from home, he warned, should be careful to specify h i s home address so that his registra- tion card may be forwarded t o his own local board and to insure that he will be included in its po- tential manpower to nil quotas for calls. The only persons exempt from registration under the lawi the Director said, are: Men between 21 and 36 years of age who regis- tered in 1940 and 1941; members of the Army, Navy, Marine, and Coast Guard forces with their re- serve components; cadets of trie United States Military, Naval, or Coast Guard Academies and men who have been accepted for ad- mittance (commencing with the academip year next succeeding such acceptance) to them; cadets of the advanced course, senior division, Reserve Officers' Train- ing Corps; diplomatic and sular agents of foreign countries; and those .who are not citizens of title United Staes, and who have ttot declared their intention to Become citizens of the United States. .Every man subject to. registra- tion who is an inmate of an asy- lum, jail, penitentiary, reforma or similar institution on February 16 is required to regis- ter on the day he leaves the insti- tution.
